I've seen Halo 3 ad's all over television for months now. Where are the Haze ad's. This game has great potential, but only hardcore gamers know about it. There's no buzz for in anywhere else.

Free Radical has a good niche following going for them much like Nippon Ichi Software or Atlus Software (and definitely SNK these days).

All things considered I'd prefer not to mix it up with the Halo crowd. Don't get me wrong, I just think that it's better to have a loyal fanbase than to take the extra risk of advertising to attract the potential sale to a few people who are on the fence.

Sure, I didn't really add much into the article, just told people to take a look, but the address is http://boards.msn.com/MSNBCboards/thread.aspx?threadid=406410

Personally, I think we should band together, pick a different news site each day, and flood their forums with Haze posts lol. Let's start our own marketing campaign! Or just make complete nuisances of ourselves (Hey...I've got plenty of time to kill).

Well, I'm hyping Haze too on some forum sites and near my friends. They still doubt which game to get (Haze or UT3/CoD4) and some of 'em have preordered Haze, just like myself.

The real hype will come when IGN and other big gamesites give it a 9+. http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Well, dunno 'bout you guys, but Haze, UT3 and CoD4 are all on my buy list, for different reasons. I'm getting them all...just one isn't enough http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

I dunno... That would require effort. I prefer being more covert about advertising like spamming this signature on different accounts (see below)

Hahah yeah, but if you're waiting for some boring *** exam, and I'm sitting at work, waiting for something to do.....might as well?!? Right? =) Hehehe, besides, I like making a nuisance of myself.

1 - Haze doesn't come out for another two months.

2 - Halo is Microsoft's biggest game.

3 - Microsoft - you're aware how much money they have?

4 - You could easily say the same about UT3 or COD4 actually. Personally I wouldn't be surprised to see Sony pushing it as well as Ubisoft this November.
